HOW TO ENTER
In order to enter, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the current month and ‘Monthly Project Competition’ as the subject, including your full name, e-mail address, phone number and age if under 16. Please attach an image of your project (you may attach more than one) and write a description of it. Your description can be as long or short as you like, but we suggest a hundred to a few hundred words (a paragraph or two), with a title for your entry. If you are under 16 you must have your parents’ permission to enter. If your entry contains another person’s work (the project, the text or the image) or a photograph of another person’s face, you must make this clear in your entry and obtain permissions from these people – or from parents in the case of children under the age of 18.
All entry instructions form part of these terms and conditions. Each entry shall constitute an e-mail containing:
- at least one photograph of an item hand-crafted out of yarn, or mostly out of yarn;
- a description of the item and the process of making it, including the title of the entry; and
- the entrant’s full name, e-mail address and phone number, and age if under 16.
The e-mail must be sent to email@example.com with the subject heading “[CURRENT MONTH] Monthly Project Competition”.
Entrants under the age of 16 must obtain parental consent to these Conditions.
All material contained within an entry must be the entrant’s own work or be submitted with the author’s permission and the author’s consent to these Conditions. While we will take reasonable steps to ensure this is the case, Loveknitting shall not be responsible for the failure of an entrant to seek and obtain this consent before entering.
Any images depicting an individual’s face must be submitted with that individual’s permission and consent to these Conditions. In the case of individuals under the age of 18, parental permission and consent to the Conditions must also be obtained. While we will take reasonable steps to ensure this is the case, Loveknitting shall not be responsible for the failure of an entrant to seek and obtain this consent before entering.
Contact details submitted along with the entry will not be published except for the entrant’s first name. Entrants who wish their first name not to be published, or who wish personal details contained within the entry material to be disguised, must indicate this in the entry, for instance by appending the sentence ‘PLEASE DISGUISE PERSONAL INFORMATION’.
The Competitions are not open to employees and families of employees of Loveknitting Ltd, its agents and anyone professionally connected with the Competition.
Entries after the closing date, which is the last date of each competition’s month, cannot be considered. We strongly advise submitting your entry well before the deadline, as we cannot take responsibility for any technical problems that may delay your submission.
Entries for each month’s Competition must be made by the last day of that month. Any entries made after that date will not be considered. No responsibility can be taken for entries which are lost, delayed, corrupted, damaged, misdirected or incomplete or which cannot be delivered for any technical, delivery or other reason. Proof of sending will not be accepted as proof of receipt.
PRIZES AND JUDGING
The winner will receive a voucher code for £100 (or equivalent in other currencies we support) to spend at www.loveknitting.com. Winners and runners-up will also have their project featured on the loveknitting blog and social media networks.
The winners will be selected by Loveknitting or by judges appointed by Loveknitting. No correspondence will be entered into on the judges’ decision, which is final.
Winners will be notified within 14 days of the closing date. In the event of a winner not being contactable, or not responding to contact, within 28 days of such notification, Loveknitting reserves the right to withdraw prize entitlement but the entry material may still be used in accordance with the Conditions.
In the unlikely event of the prize (or one or more constituent elements) not being available, Loveknitting reserves the right to provide a similar prize of equal or greater value. No cash alternative is available in whole or in part and, unless otherwise agreed in writing by Loveknitting, the prizes will only be awarded directly to the winners.
RIGHTS GRANTED TO LOVEKNITTING CONCERNING OUR USE OF YOUR MATERIAL
Entering one of our Monthly Project Competitions grants rights to Loveknitting to use your entry for our site, social media networks, products and publicity material. It is essential therefore, if your entry contains anything created by another person, that you have that person’s permission. It is also essential, if your entry contains a picture of anyone else’s face, that you have that person’s permission, and parental permission if the person is under 18. We may edit material before publication. If you wish us to disguise your first name or any other details before publication please let us know. If your entry wins a prize or is shortlisted, you must not grant similar permissions of publication to any other organisation.
Entrance into the Competition shall constitute a licence and grant to Loveknitting, its affiliates and sub-licencees a royalty-free, perpetual, worldwide, irrevocable and sub-licensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish and display all material contained within the entry for any purpose in any media including, but not limited to, www.loveknitting.com, social media networks and printed materials. In the case of shortlisted and winning entries, this licence is exclusive except for the entrant’s personal use. The entrant agrees not to assert any moral rights in relation to such use where the moral rights in respect of the content are the entrant’s to assert.
